    The acts perform live on Tuesday. Wednesday is the results show. Other nights are repackaged highlight shows. Technically not a rerun

    Ditto this! Except for the ventriloquist, I would not vote any of the acts. This show is beginning to strike me as highly manipulated by the producers.

    You need to read the episode description and it is pretty obvious which are repackaged shows.

    The 60 year old lady with the crossbow, Sylvia Sylvia? The "couple" who split up a fee months before the auditions. Something duoa. I'll look it up later and edit this post

    Agree with this 100%. I LOVED him in previous episodes. So freakin' funny, but this last show? It wasn't him, at all. Magic isn't just about cool tricks. It is entertainment. Piff lost that in his last act.

    I did just watch some magician who won last year, do a trick with wine bottles and a wine glass, and that was awesome. No idea how he did that. Piff's performance was just long and boring. I wonder how much was due to the producers influencing/coaching/guiding/coercing his trick.

    I think I was expecting the dog to be in the wood chipper. I don't know. Hope he makes it want to see more.

    Sorry, the comedian who stutters was awful. I thought that set was unwatchable.

    Sidebar, I think I have been watching these shows too much and have seen too many of these magicians and the same tricks done over and over. Especially after watching the Penn and teller show. Puff was on season one. The regurgitator had been on TV for years (and he is doing a trick despite what Heidi thinks). That writing down what people are thinking has been done a million times and is pretty obvious now how it is done. piffs trick has been done over and over too just with different theatrics. Pretty easy to just pull a dog out of that chair.

    "Looks like #3 is swaying." Awesome Piff... groan.

    Totally agreed. He's atrocious and I hate to sound crass but there's only one reason he's on this show at this point.

    Oh c'mon he's not THAT bad. He's charming and of course the disability is the selling point. Half the solo vocalists make it not on their talent but on their back story.

    Yes but now that the shows are live, the one hour results show is on Wednesday night.

    I got confused also early on this season with the repackaged clips show - I forget what they called it but I caught on after a couple of them.

    As far as over production - OMG - the worst was the mariachi girl - at one point I think she got hit in the face by one of the back up male dancer's red handkerchiefs. The video behind the female singer was ridiculous.

    And just goes to show you - I didn't even remember the mariachi girl was cut.
    I wonder why the other acts dropped out - you would think after all they went through they would be there come hell or high water.

    He was last night. I never came close to cracking a smile and I eat this show up. I thought his audition was decent enough but the other comedians that are in this blow him out of the water.

    "Do you remember me? I remember me. Hee hee hee." Terrific opener.

    I also agree that the stuttering comic sucked, big time! If the disability is the selling point, then I'd prefer to watch a narcoleptic comic who quickly doses off between punchlines or applause breaks but wakens with a startle and keeps the pace/rhythm otherwise unimpeded. ;)

    I thought the magician with the wine bottles was a bit clumsy throughout his performance. I would also suggest that the multiple wine bottles were like stacking beer cups. He held the tubes in an odd way so that he coud release one of the "bottles" from one end or the wine glass from the other end. The tube in his right hand was always held vertically whenever he put the tube from his left hand under his right arm briefly.

    Something was really wrong with the voting. That one singer, IMHO, stole the show. And she came out in the 3 that had to be voted on again. Something does not smell right. I thought the wine bottles were great. And finally, they need much more camera time on Heidi when she is dressed like that.

    I didn't think the singer was that great despite their gushing over her. She sounded terribly off key, especially in the beginning.

    Once the live shows start there is no reason to hear from the judges. Especially this crew who is hardly ever critical. I usually skip over them.

    That's the reason AGT has the two saves. Contestants they want to put through can go through.

    This year AGT allows voting before the show concludes. That may make it harder for the last few contestants.

    I agree with the PP, I don't think stuttering comedian was good this time;

    But, now the last few acts no longer have an advantage of being remembered better than the first acts. If you see an act you REALLY like, you can vote for them right away.

    AGT seems to spread out the "A" acts. One of the first acts, one of the last acts and an act which performs at about the one hour point tend to be the better acts.

    A poster asked why the act he thought was the best was in danger of being eliminated. I think the new voting system is one reason. I don't completely agree with Douglas, I don't think she was the best...but she shouldn't have been near the bottom.
